On Saturday, January 11, approximately fifty fourth and fifth graders participated in the annual Spelling Bee competition held at H.B. Whitehorne Middle School. The Junior Woman’s Club of Verona would like to thank all the children who participated and congratulate our winners. Congratulations to Christian Castner, 3rd place (HBW), Veronica Domyslawski, 2nd place (OLL), and Karina Squilanti, 1st place (HBW).

Thank you to our judges Mayor Robert Manley, Principal Jeffrey Monacelli and Principal Julie DiGiacomo who kindly volunteered their time for the morning. Thank you to Larisa Zulic and Denise Verzella from the Verona Juniors who organized the event. Finally, thank you to Verona Junior’s president, Kristen Donohue, who announced the words.

The Junior Woman’s Club of Verona is a versatile organization that has been involved in social and charitable work since its inception in 1926. The Juniors address Verona’s diverse needs by promoting education, preserving natural resources, encouraging healthy lifestyles, working on behalf of the elderly and people with disabilities, supporting participation in the arts and advocating for issues of concern to women, children and families.

Anyone interested in learning more about this very active organization of women is welcome to contact [email protected]. Prospective members also are welcome at business meetings, which are held the second Wednesday of each month (except April, July, August and December) at 8 p.m. in the Verona Community Center.
